Users of the popular Huff & Puff Trail will now be able to enjoy a nature walk and a great book at the same time, thanks to a new StoryTrails program installed this week.
StoryTrails, an initiative of the Timberland Regional Libraries, launched in spring 2021 in response to programming limitations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Shelton’s StoryTrail features Maybe Something Beautiful by F. Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell and is illustrated by Rafael López.
“We selected this particular book because of its all-ages appeal, colorful illustrations, positive example of community involvement, and accessibility in two languages,” said Shelton Timberland Library staff.
Yard signs along the trail each display a single page of the book, along with an accompanying question or prompt to encourage discussion. Each page is available in both English and Spanish.
